. >> and, john allen, you're watching right along with us. these are some extraordinary events we're seeing. >> they are absolutely remarkable. you know, i can tell you, john and zoraida, based on the reporting i've been doing this week, i think pope francis has charmed the entire world except for one small constituency which are his security patrol who are quite frankly at witt's end what he's going to do next and how to keep him safe. obviously this is a pope who is determined to be as close to his people as possible, not to be walled off from them, and at a pastoral level, at a human level, that's a remarkably endearing quality, but for the people who are charged with his security, it also has got their blood pressure up. i think we're seeing additional indications this morning of how he's going to be somebody that they're going to have to sort of figure out a new script to make sure he can be as close to people as possible but at the same time not be putting himself in harm's way. >> john, i want to stay with you for a second here and talk about some of the dignitaries that will be atte

[ cheers ] i don't think we need to name any names, do we? >> reporter: now, these divisions have become personal lately in the gop, and i think a way, wolf, we don't normally see. but they're substantive divisions as well. how to tackle the issues like immigration reform, things like same-sex marriage. something that's becoming increasingly popular. and, also, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you i

that the homecoming is quite, to quote him, "risky" he says. >>> secretary of state john kerry making one more stop on his first trip overseas. an announced visit to iraq. he landed in iraq a short time ago. nick payton walsh has been traveling with the secretary and joins us via phone. what else is john kerry pressing for? >> yes, christi. on top of the agenda here, it is going to be a direct approach from john kerry to prime minister maliki. intervene on flights from iraq to syria delivering fighters to assist the regime. the u.s. is convinced that almost 80 flights and they want to be clear that iraq should, if it wants to have a role in forming the future of syria with the syrian opposition, they should prevent the evidence, they say. they say that inspections done by iraqis aren't enough and those have turned up humanitarian aid but the u.s. is convinced that those flights are carrying weapon supplies. a real trip here for secretary of state. >> all right. nick payton walsh, thank you so much for the update, we appreciate it. >>> thank you for kick starting your morning with us here. we have m
breakout. john berman has that. >> this is nuts. canadian police arrested two inmates who used a hijacked helicopter to pull off a daring prison escape. police say the inmates 36-year-old benjamin hudon-barbeau and 33-year-old danny provencal climbed a ladder dangling from the chopper. they were whisked away from this maximum security facility outside montreal. the first inmate and two unidentified suspects were apprehended really quickly. the second inmate surrendered peacefully overnight. so it's weird but over. >>> a vigil on the campus of seton hill university near pittsburgh after a deadly bus crash. the woman's lacrosse team bus skidded off the pennsylvania turnpike saturday, smashed into a tree. the bus driver and the coach of the lacrosse team who was six months pregnant were killed. there was some rain, there was some snow on the road but police have not released an official cause of the crash. >>> in a very public display of republican soul searching, the rnc is set to release an internal review of the 2012 election, what many people are calling an autopsy report. it includes so
. let's go straight to cnn's john king. he's on the scene traveling with the president in jerusalem. they're investigating but there is no firm evidence yet that the syrians have used chemical weapons. >> that was the fascinating exchange when the issue came up, wolf. you know well all the intelligence assets that are here. israel, the neighbor to the northeast is syria. they've been helping the united states. there are satellite images. there are drones flying over syria from israel and other places in the region. and there are different ways they can test if chemical weapons were used. sensors they put in the air to test. so there is no question there is an intelligence investigation under way. so the president made clear again that would be a game changer but he said he is waiting for the facts. he didn't say what he would do, if there is conclusive evidence he wasn't clear. it would be a game changer but what next? white house officials say that is one reason they're going to be very, very careful, gather the facts, so they can talk about what the president would do if this work
chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by, and john king are joining us from amman, jordan, where the president wrapped up his trip. he has done well in jordan, now the hard work begins. where do we go from here? >> reporter: the white house feels he accomplished what they set out as his primary goal, which was to reconnect with the israeli people and convince them that he understands where they're coming from on the primary security issues. the big question as you point out, can this lead to real accomplishments, that would be on the peace front with palestinians, simply too many questions that remain outstanding when it comes to settlements and exchange of prisoners, other major issues that the arab world and palestinians are unsatisfied with. and syria, iran, these are still just two looming trouble spots that are unaddressed at this point, but what we do know, the president and netanyahu prime minister of israel ended the note on a renewed -- >> reporter: the frost melted, major concession from netanyahu, they now have a real partnership, ability to work togethe
reporter kristy john call me. >> can you take us through what happened? you heard the fire alarm, started to leave your room and what happened? >> usually when the fire alarm goes off in my apartment it's usually somebody burning something on the stove. i opened my door to see what was burning. i didn't see any smoke or anything. i just saw my roommate, james, just standing in front of me, approximately like four feet in front of me with some kind of assault rifle. he had it pointed down at the ground but as soon as i opened the door he just made eye contact with me and started raising it towards my head. >> when he made eye contact with you, what did he look like? what was his expression? >> he just had a really cold, hard stare. >> so you guys weren't exactly friends. >> no. i lived with him -- i moved into my apartment at the beginning of fall semester, fall of 2012. you know, i have tried to get to know him and stuff. but, no, we're not friends. he's just very anti-social. he doesn't want to know me. he doesn't want to make friends. he just keeps to himself. >> so you opened your door
